Youngstown Engagement Session with Jeff & Carmen

They were set up by a couple of friends.  The four of them went to dinner together and Carmen was pretty sure Jeff would call tomorrow.  But the next day came and went, followed by the next, and the next…still without a word.  Finally, FOUR…DAYS…LATER, Jeff called.  After a wait like that, I suspect she wasn’t sure if she’d rather date him or punch him.

But, as much as waiting on a call for 96 hours irked her, in the end, it’s Jeff’s calm demeanor and reserved decision making that Carmen seems to admire most.  And Jeff’s quiet composure is the perfect balance to her passion and enthusiasm.  If I had to guess, that is likely what Jeff loves about her.  Of course, I’m sure it doesn’t hurt that she’s gorgeous!  😉

We met for their engagement session in downtown Youngstown and then headed to Mill Creek Park.  They will be getting married in a couple weeks so check back to view what I am sure will be a beautiful event with two beautiful people (inside and out.)


David & Rachel – Laughter-Filled Engagement Session

Both David and Rachel enjoy the outdoors so when they went out hiking last June, Rachel thought little of it.  David however had a plan.  After a couple hours of trails, they stopped for a photo in front of a waterfall.  Rachel set up the self timer and ran over next to David and he kissed her o

n the cheek just as the camera went off.  One more photo he asked.  This time though, David was down on one knee proposing as the camera clicked.

They chose downtown Akron and Stan Hywet for their engagement session.  I had a great time searching out backdrops, avoiding the picketers, walking the gardens, and just getting to know these two.  They will be married in July at Stan Hywet and I am privileged to be a part of it.  I hope their lives are filled with as much laughter as our session was.
